What does "scorcher"/scorching" mean in football?

What does "scorcher"/"scorching" mean in these sentences?


69. Almost a dream introduction for Matic! The Serbian lets rip with a scorcher from outside the box, only for it to crash into an unfortunate defender

GOAL! Barcelona 0-2 Bayern Munich (Lewandowski 56)
Jamal Musiala takes a touch on the edge of the D and sends a scorching shot off the inside of the right-hand post. Marc-André ter Stegen dives but has no chance. Robert Lewandowski sticks out a boot to stud the rebound into the empty net. Bayern have Barca’s number all right.

Scorch means to burn and in football a scorcher refers to a really hard shot. A scorcher is a really well-struck shot that travels very fast and powerfully into the net. Another word for this would be thunderbolt.
